16:10 RFI.fr Abiy has 'special responsibility' to end Tigray conflict: Nobel panel

"As Prime Minister and winner of the Peace Prize, Abiy Ahmed has a special responsibility to end the conflict and contribute to peace," Berit Reiss-Andersen, chair of the committee, said in a statement to AFP. Northern Ethiopia has been beset by conflict since November 2020 when Ahmed sent troops into Tigray after accusing the region's ruling party, the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF), of attacks on federal army camps. The fighting between forces loyal to Abiy and the TPLF and their allies has killed thousands of people and forced several million from their homes. Tigray is under what the United Nations calls a de facto blockade that is preventing life-saving medicine and food from reaching millions, including hundreds of thousands in famine-like conditions. "The humanitarian situation is very serious and it is not acceptable that humanitarian aid does not get through sufficiently," Reiss-Andersen said. Speaking at a press conference, Human Rights Watch executive director

In addition, we comment on the names that could have received the prize in astrophysics and gravitation, and draw attention to the individuals who made outstanding contributions to black hole physics and astrophysics and should be mentioned as possible and deserved recipients of the prize. We speculate about the branches of research in astrophysics and gravitation, with an emphasis on the latter, that can be contemplated in the future with a Nobel prize.

"It has become incredibly hard and far more dangerous for every one of us," Ressa told reporters awaiting her arrival at Oslo's airport ahead of Friday's Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, where she will be honoured alongside Dmitry Muratov of Russia. Ressa, the co-founder of the investigative news site Rappler, and Muratov, a co-founder of Russia's leading independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta, were given the award in October for their efforts to "safeguard freedom of expression". Criticising "our authoritarian-style leaders and budding dictators" who "want us to voluntarily give up our rights", Ressa urged journalists to defend their rights. "Now more than ever we need to protect our rights, otherwise we will lose them," she said.

"There is something quite inhumane I think in the responses of these two governments, particularly I think of the British government," he said in an online press conference the day after receiving his Nobel winner's medal. "It's rather strange almost to see the language, the narrative that is constructed against or about these attempts to cross," he added.

Last month saw a tragedy in which at least 27 people drowned. The issue has become a flashpoint for leaders in London and Paris, provoking a war of words amid rising anti-immigrant sentiment in both countries. Around 26,000 people have crossed so far in 2021, leading to severe pressure on the UK government which had vowed to reduce migration after pushing through Britain's departure from the European Union.

Ressa, an outspoken critic of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, and Russian journalist Dmitry Muratov were named in October as the winners of this year's award for their efforts to "safeguard freedom of expression". She is on bail pending an appeal against a conviction last year in a cyber libel case, and was required to apply to three courts for permission to pick up the prize in person.

The veteran journalist told AFP on Tuesday she felt "great" after clearing the final legal hurdle. The Court of Appeals, which is handling the cyber libel case, last week approved her trip after rejecting government lawyers' claims that she was a "flight risk".

06:38 RFI.fr Physics Nobel belies Italy's scientific brain drain

Some 14,000 Italian researchers quit the country between 2009 and 2015, according to Italy's national statistics agency Istat -- a trend explained in large part by a lack of investment. "Italy is not a welcoming country for researchers, whether Italian or foreign," Parisi said in October after being awarded the Nobel prize for his work on the interplay of disorder and fluctuations in physical systems. "Research is underfunded and the situation has worsened over the past 10-15 years." Government funding fell from 9.9 billion euros ($11.2 billion) in 2007 to 8.3 billion in 2015 -- the latest figures available -- while in 2019, research spending in the eurozone's third largest economy was significantly below the EU average. As well as Parisi, Italy has produced some top scientists in recent decades, notably Carlo Rubbia, the CERN physicist who won a Nobel in 1984, and neuroembryologist Rita Levi-Montalcini, who won in 1986.

The researchers were honoured for providing "new insights about the labour market" and showing "what conclusions about cause and effect can be drawn from natural experiments", the Nobel committee said in a statement. Half of the 10-million-kronor ($1.1 million, one million euro) prize went to Card, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, who was born in Canada in 1956, "for his empirical contributions to labour economics." Card's work has focused on labour market effects of minimum wages, immigration and education. The other half went jointly to Angrist, 61, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Imbens, 58, a professor at Stanford, "for their methodological contributions to the analysis of causal relationships."

22:58 RFI.fr Eco-friendly drug production Nobel winner's proudest achievement

Princeton professor David MacMillan on Wednesday won the Nobel Chemistry Prize for his work developing a new tool to scale up chemical reactions in an environmentally friendly way, known as "organocatalysis." Here is a lightly edited interview that the Scotsman, who holds British and American citizenships, gave to AFP after the announcement. - Organic molecules - Q: Why is organocatalysis so different and important compared to the catalysts that came before, such as metals and enzymes? A: Chemical reactions make all the things that are around us: medicine, materials, etc. And those reactions often require "catalysis." To do catalysis, the world used lots of things that were toxic or created problems for the environment. About 23 years ago, we thought "What if you could use the same types of molecules that you'd find in your body?" In other words, organic molecules -- because we know that those are fine in the environment, and they're happy to be around in our atmosphere. - Eureka -

15:21 RFI.fr Duo wins Nobel Chemistry Prize for work on catalysts

Germany's Benjamin List and David MacMillan of the United States on Wednesday won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their development of a precise new tool for molecular construction, the jury said. The duo was awarded "for their development of a precise new tool for molecular construction: organocatalysis. This has had a great impact on pharmaceutical research, and has made chemistry greener," the Nobel Committee said. List and MacMillan, both 53, will share the 10-million-kronor ($1.1-million, one-million-euro) prize. MacMillan is a professor at Princeton University in the US, while List is a director at the Max Planck Institute in Germany. "Many research areas and industries are dependent on chemists' ability to construct molecules that can form elastic and durable materials, store energy in batteries or inhibit the progression of disease," the Nobel Committee at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said in a statement. "This work requires catalysts, which are substances that

Breakthroughs in DNA sequencing, innovative gas storage, nanocrystals or a second chance for mRNA Covid-19 vaccines? Speculators on the Nobel Prize in Chemistry are spoiled for choice ahead of the announcement on Wednesday. The winner -- or winners -- of the prestigious prize will be unveiled at 11:45 am (0945 GMT) "at the earliest" in Stockholm. Thought to be among the favourites for the medicine prize that was announced on Monday, the pioneers of the Covid-19 mRNA vaccines could see their work instead snatching the chemistry category. Hungarian biochemist Katalin Kariko and US immunologist Drew Weissman -- whose work served as a basis for the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines -- have a second chance on Wednesday, according to Swedish and international experts interviewed by AFP. Potentially, they could be honoured alongside Canada's Pieter Cullis, another mRNA expert. With well over one billion people worldwide having received a dose of vaccines based on the technology, its

23:16 RFI.fr Physics Nobel: deciphering climate disorder to better predict it

The Nobel Prize in Physics has gone to three scientists who sought to predict the long-term evolution of a complex system such as the climate by modelling variables -- weather, human actions -- that create disorder within those systems. What is the link between the modelling of global warming, which earned Syukuro Manabe and Klaus Hasselmann half the prize, and the work of the third winner, Giorgio Parisi, who focused on the underlying disorder of matter? All three study complex systems: large-scale climate or the behaviour of certain materials at an infinitely small scale. From the erratic fluctuations within these systems, the three physicists succeeded in teasing out simpler behaviours and reliable predictions. "We recognised that emerging phenomena sometimes require us to look at all the individual complicated physical mechanisms and knit them together to make a prediction," said Nobel Physics Committee member John Wettlaufer, on hand when the awards were announced in Stockholm on
